Summer stretching on the grass Summer dresses pass In the shade of a willow tree Creeps a-crawling over me Over me and over you Stuck together with God's glue ItÃs gonna get stickier too. ItÃs been a long hot summer Let's get under cover Don't try too hard to think Don't think at all. I'm not the only one Staring at the sun Afraid of what you'd find If you take a look inside. Not just deaf and dumb IÃm staring at the sun Not the only one Who's happy to go blind. There's an insect in your ear If you scratch it won't disappear. It's gonna itch and burn and sting Do you wanna see what the scratching brings! Waves that leave me out of reach Breaking on your back like a beach. Will we ever live in peace? 'Cause those that can't do often have to And those that can't do often have to preach To the ones staring at the sun Afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside. Not just deaf and dumb, staring at the sun I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind. Intransigence in all around Military's still in town Armour plated suits and ties Daddy just won't say goodbye Referee won't blow the whistle. God is good but will he listen? I'm nearly great but there's something missing. I left it in the duty free, Oh, though you never really belonged to me. You're not the only one staring at the sun Afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside. I'm not sucking my thumb, staring at the sun Not the only one who's happy to go blind.
